Marfan syndrome causes

Marfan syndrome is caused by a mutation in a gene called FBN1. The mutation limits the body's ability to make proteins needed to build connective tissue. One in four people with Marfan syndrome develops the condition for unknown reasons. A person with Marfan syndrome has a 1 in 2 chance of passing it on to their child.
